How do I give myself a tongue lashing for REALLY breaking Rule #1….sigh….

by Skip April 30, 2016

Rule #1 – Adult themes, kid friendly; do not post up anything that would cause little Janie and Johnny to ask their parents “What does this mean”? Kimberly put up that well deserved rant that Steven Crowder, conservative comedian, laid down at the UMass Amherst (“the mother ship”) when “oh so sensitive at any perceived […]

Bernie gets pasted in last week’s primaries – so he acts like just another capitalist

by Skip April 30, 2016

(Image H/T: Powerline)  The primary season is starting to wind down and Bernie Sanders took a pounding in winning only 1 of the 5 primaries last week – he’s mathematically been eliminated.  And sure, he has raised a whole lot of money outside of the typical donor class but even that isn’t enough.  But like […]

GrokTALK! April 30, 2016

by Skip April 30, 2016

What started off as a rather free form show certainly changed quickly! Grokster Mike and I started off with a WTF (here’s the link) on the Left’s propensity to label any discussion with which they disagree with as “hate speech” – and keep moving on to silence any dissent (and then work to totally destroy […]

Trump is Different from Hillary HOW?

by Kimberly Morin April 30, 2016

I have constantly and consistently railed against Hillary Clinton for her treatment of her husband’s sexual assault and rape accusers. Clinton is a vile and despicable piece of human filth for how she treated those women. She victimized her husband’s victims. Well apparently her buddy Trump did the same thing when it came to Mike […]

by Kimberly Morin April 30, 2016

On Thursday the Washington Time reported on the CASA Act – The Campus Accountability and Safety Act. This is legislation brought forth by extreme far left wing Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri. This legislation is based on the bogus claim that there is a “rape culture” on college campuses.

By Their Enemies Ye Shall Know Them

by Mike April 30, 2016

Cruz and Fiorina Making The Right Enemies And Proud Of It! My comment posted under the article Carly Fiorina is much more than BOGOF on ConservativeHQ.com this morning: Cruz and Fiorina have both shown over and over that they don’t much care for “conventional wisdom”, but prefer battle-hardened experience and the wisdom of the ages […]

Notable Quote – F.A. Hayek

by Skip April 29, 2016

It is one of the great tragedies of our time that the masses have come to believe that they have reached their high standard of material welfare as a result of having pulled down the wealthy, and to fear that the preservation or emergence of such a class would deprive them of something they would […]

Solve National Debt problem, Jeanne Shaheen, then MAYBE demand football PSIs from the NFL

by Skip April 29, 2016

Seriously – there are a TON of problems facing the nation that the Congress with which it should be concerned.  A lot of them, IMHO, are functions of what they have already done – and done badly (both from a policy decision and legislation writing standpoint).  And a lot of it is from stepping over […]

Thumbnail image for Abortion stats: who’s holding up the bill?

Sorry-not-sorry to bring this up again, but will someone please point me to the place in the Senate where the abortion statistics bill was stashed?  Who could possibly be benefiting from stalling on this? I sat in on the House study committee meetings that resulted in this year’s HB 629, “relative to induced termination of […]

Trump can NEVER be Trusted to Protect the 2nd Amendment. EVER.

by Kimberly Morin April 29, 2016

At this point most people know that Trump was all for an ‘Assault Weapons Ban’ and waiting periods for firearms back in a book he “wrote” in 2000 – The America We Deserve. Since he has been running for President, Trump has suddenly become pro-2nd Amendment (although no one seems to have any photos of […]

Hassan and NH Bureaucrats know better than your doctor how to treat your pain

by Kimberly Morin April 29, 2016

Yesterday Governor Hassan sent a press release touting her signage of the new legislation regarding rule making in the prescriptions of opioids. Suddenly Maggie Hassan and her cohorts in crime in the house and senate (from both political parties) know better than your doctor how to treat your pain. Hassan must have gotten a medical […]

The Massachusetts State Senate voted 32-2 this week to make it illegal to sell cigarettes to anyone under the age of 21. The move follows local laws in several towns that already prohibit sales to those under 21. Experts suggest that taking the rule statewide will reduce the number of smokers in the Bay State […]

That is Called Conquest

by Steve MacDonald April 29, 2016

When someone comes to your country and they embrace the habits, language, and traditions along with (or even in place of) their own they are advocating your nations worldview, culture, and values. When they refuse to assimilate or integrate, and demand you honor their language, habits, and traditions before your own, that is called conquest.     […]

$15/hr Min. Wage – not just putting robots into fast food

by Skip April 28, 2016

So California has just raised its minimum wage to be $15/hr in a couple of years.  And already small biz owners are really concerned that the risk they took (and in many cases, HUGE risks, relatively speaking) will be wiped out by Government fiat (as opposed to real competition in the marketplace – after all, […]

University of New Hampshire Media Relations Director Erica Mantz told the New Hampshire Union Leader that the $17,570.00 table purchased for the Holloway Commons, “…was a mistake, and it won’t happen again.” You think? “We believe the concept of what they wanted to do with the table was great, but we believe that it could […]

Decisions have consequences. Now we get stuck with the bill

by Skip April 27, 2016

I keep seeing my electric bill going up and up and up – and I generally use less electricity than the year before (yes, I do look at that chart that Eversource provides giving a year’s lookback at actual KW used).  So can I blame the environmentalists that just don’t want to see conservation but […]

Notable Quote – R.W. Grant

by Skip April 27, 2016

The politician dispenses wealth which other men have produced, and we say he is “compassionate,” while the businessman who produces the wealth is dismissed as “greedy” and “materialistic.” -R.W. Grant  (The Incredible Bread Machine) I have said this for a long time – if you deem a “capitalist” as being greedy and don’t like it, the […]
